Is it just me, or do the last 2.5 years feel like a fever dream of sweatpants, starting at a computer screen, and occasionally throwing on a pair of earrings or a statement necklace for a Zoom call? After what felt like an eternity of hiding out in my house, I was so excited to head out into the real world again... except I had nothing to wear... and I forgot how to dress myself.
I was caught in a wardrobe rut, and Stitch Fix was just not making the cut. On the hunt for solution, I came across Wantable, an online clothing subscription and personal styling service that helps take the guesswork out of what to wear, how to pull together the perfect outfit, and so much more. Keep reading below to find out how Wantable helped me get my groove back - and why they're constantly a top online personal styling service.
Endless Options for Every Season, Occasion, and Style Preference
When I signed up for Wantable, I took a style quiz which led me to their fashion stream, an ever-growing list of items that matched my results. All I had to do was choose my size and then request or decline an item — easy, peasy. The clothing was cute, seasonal, and came in many different styles and a dizzying array of colors and fabrics. There are thousands of options — including clothing, jewelry, handbags, and hats by brands like BB Dakota, Cupcakes & Cashmere, Free People, Beyond Yoga and Kut from the Kloth — and they're organized in four different categories: Women's Style Edit, Sleep & Body Edit, Active Edit and Men's Active Edit.
Compared to my past experiences with Stitch Fix, which only gave me a few options to choose from, Wantable offered hundreds of pieces and they allowed me to pick and choose what I liked or didn't like.
A Personal Stylist Who Gets You
Inside the Wantable women's styling box, I discovered peach and white packaging, a personalized welcome note from my stylist, and seven neatly folded, ultra-soft items in pink, blue, cream, and brown.
These days we all want to be heard, and my online personal stylist, Katrina, has got me covered. Not only is she attentive and empathetic, but she genuinely cares about helping me look and feel my best and personalizes each box with care. She goes above and beyond to ensure she's met my needs, listens to my thoughts and concerns, is dedicated to my style evolution and takes feedback like a true fashion expert.
On that note, it should come as no surprise that Wantable also has fantastic customer service. They understand that the customer comes first, and they'll practically bend over backwards to make sure you're not just happy with your experience...you're thrilled!
Buy More, Get More Style — For Less
These are all of the reasons why Wantable is the top personal styling service for me. Some of the other online subscription boxes may have more names I know and love, but they come at a much higher price point and with the current state of the economy, I'd prefer to get the most bang for my buck. Plus, with Wantable, I get access to trendy up-and-coming designers and if I decide to buy five or more items, I get an instant 20% savings on my purchase. Cha-ching!
Free Shipping & Returns
With Wantable's clothing subscription service, you'll receive seven hand-picked items sent directly to your door and you've got five days to make a decision on what to keep or return. I love that they don't rush me and give me plenty of time to try before I buy.
While the cost of gas and everyday essentials keeps rising, Wantable makes sure you save a little money with free shipping, returns and exchanges (to the US only) which is included in the $20 stylist fee. Plus, I like that they give you the option of returning the clothes using the pre-paid return mailer either via USPS or UPS.
